>>22 Biopharma Stocks With Breakout Potential in 2012

From a technical perspective, PCRX is following through with upside momentum here after the stock started to breakout on Friday above some near-term overhead resistance at $12.01. At last check, PCRX has hit an intraday high of $13.21 on volume that's well above its three-month average action of 229,980 shares.

Traders should continue to look for long-biased trades as long as PCRX is trending above Friday high of $12.29 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that's near or above 229,980 shares as bullish. If we continue to see that action, then PCRX should easily trade north of $15 in the near future.
